Adding fuel to the fire of sexual allegations against House of Cards star Kevin Spacey, Netflix has decided to draw curtains on the show after its sixth season. The David Fincher-produced show began shooting its sixth season just two weeks ago.
"Season six is our last season," a spokeswoman told AFP.
While reports say that the two the show's end has nothing to do with Kevin's situation right now, Spacey can hardly play the President on screen with child abuse allegations off it. Spacey is facing allegations of sexual misconduct from actor Anthony Rapp claiming that Spacey "made a sexual advance" at him at a party 31 years ago while Rapp was just 14-years-old.
House of Cards production company Media Rights Capital and Netflix issued a joint statement saying they were "deeply troubled" with the allegations against Spacey, who is currently not scheduled to be on set.
"In response to last night's revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported," the statement said.
Starring alongside Robin Wright, Spacey is also executive producer of the platform's flagship series that premiered in 2013. Adapted from a BBC drama of the same name, House Of Cards has earned 46 Emmy nominations and Golden Globes for its lead couple.
